|Pharmacologic Atrial Natriuretic Peptide Reduces Human Leg Capillary Filtration - Watenpaugh, Donald E.|
Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) is produced and secreted by atrial cells. We measured calf capillary filtration rate with prolonged venous-occlusion plethys-mography of supine health male subjects during pharmacologic infusion of ANP (48 pmol/kg/min for 15 min; n equals 6) and during placebo infusion (n equals 7). Results during infusions were compared to prior control measurements. ANP infusion increased plasma (ANP) from 30 plus or minus 4 to 2,568 plus or minus 595 pmol/L...

|An Anomalous External Force on the MAP Spacecraft - Starin, Scott R.|
A common theme in discussions of the Microwave Anisotropy Probe (MAP) is the attainment of mission goals for minimal cost. One area of cost savings was a reduction in the fuel budget required. To reach orbit around the L2 notation point of the Earth-Sun system, the MAP spacecraft was guided very close to the Moon, allowing a gravity-assisted trajectory out to L2. In order to property time the lunar swing-by, MAP followed a trajectory of three-and-a-half highly elliptical phasing loops...

|Tethered Formation Configurations: Meeting the Scientific Objectives of Large Aperture and Interferometric Science - Farley, Rodger E.|
With the success of the Hubble Space Telescope, it has become apparent that new frontiers of science and discovery are made every time an improvement in imaging resolution is made. For the HST working primarily in the visible and near-visible spectrum, this meant designing, building, and launching a primary mirror approximately three meters in diameter. Conventional thinking tells us that accomplishing a comparable improvement in resolution at longer wavelengths for Earth and Space Science appli...

A three-dimensional large-eddy simulation model, TASS, is used to simulate the behavior of aircraft wake vortices in a real atmosphere. The purpose for this study is to validate the use of TASS for simulating the decay and transport of wake vortices. Three simulations are performed and the results are compared with the observed data from the 1994-1995 Memphis field experiments. The selected cases have an atmospheric environment of weak turbulence and stable stratification...

|Benchmark Problems Used to Assess Computational Aeroacoustics Codes - Dahl, Milo D.|
The field of computational aeroacoustics (CAA) encompasses numerical techniques for calculating all aspects of sound generation and propagation in air directly from fundamental governing equations. Aeroacoustic problems typically involve flow-generated noise, with and without the presence of a solid surface, and the propagation of the sound to a receiver far away from the noise source. It is a challenge to obtain accurate numerical solutions to these problems...

|Wave emissions from planetary magnetospheres - Grabbe, Crockett L|
An important development in the Earth magnetosphere was the discovery of the boundary of the plasma sheet and its apparent role in the dynamics of the magnetotails. Three instabilities (negative energy mode, counterstreaming, and the Buneman instability) were investigated through analytical and numerical studies of their frequency and growth rate as a function of the angle of propagation.

Studies of blowing snow over Antarctica have been limited greatly by the remoteness and harsh conditions of the region. Space-based observations are also of lesser value than elsewhere, given the similarities between ice clouds and snow-covered surfaces, both at infrared and visible wavelengths. It is only in recent years that routine ground-based observation programs have acquired sufficient data to overcome the gap in our understanding of surface blowing snow...

|Generalization of the Time-Energy Uncertainty Relation of Anandan-Aharonov Type - Hirayama, Minoru|
A new type of time-energy uncertainty relation was proposed recently by Anandan and Aharonov. Their formula, to estimate the lower bound of time-integral of the energy-fluctuation in a quantum state is generalized to the one involving a set of quantum states. This is achieved by obtaining an explicit formula for the distance between two finitely separated points in the Grassman manifold.

The principles of operation of n-i-p-i photodetectors are discussed. Special consideration is given to issues that are relevant to the performance of IR detectors such as noise, dark current, and surface effects. In addition, a novel IR detector that promises to provide information about the spectral distribution of the infrared radiation emitted from an object and, consequently, about its temperature, independent of the distance between detector and object is discussed...

|Metrics for Labeled Markov Systems - Desharnais, Josee|
Partial Labeled Markov Chains are simultaneously generalizations of process algebra and of traditional Markov chains. They provide a foundation for interacting discrete probabilistic systems, the interaction being synchronization on labels as in process algebra. Existing notions of process equivalence are too sensitive to the exact probabilities of various transitions. This paper addresses contextual reasoning principles for reasoning about more robust notions of ''approximate'' equivalence betw...

|Radon in buildings (Volume NBS Special Publication 581) - ColleÌ, R|
Keywords: This is the proceedings of a Roundtable Discussion of Radon in Buildings held June 15, 1979 at the National Bureau of Standards in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The meeting brought together a number of participants with diverse interdisciplinary interest in radiation protection, radiation measurement and building technology, provided a forum to exchange information, and drew attention to some of the problems and research needs associated with radiation exposure due to radon in buildings. Emphasis was placed on (1) the characterization of the sources and pathways of radon in buildings; (2) the biological and health effects; (3) measurement considerations; and (4) strategies and control technologies to minimize indoor radiation exposure
